Weather hits football fixtures once more
THE weather caused problems for north Hampshire's football teams once more at the weekend, with waterlogged pitches and high winds causing numerous games to be called off.
Basingstoke Town's home game against Chelmsford City was called off after a morning inspection deemed the pitch at the Camrose unfit for play. Jason Bristow's men will be hoping that tomorrow's trip to Farnborough goes ahead as they are fast running out of available dates for rescheduled fixtures.
Hartley Wintney FC were left with little option other than to postpone the Combined Counties League Premier Division visit of Epsom and Ewell with their pitch under water and the Memorial Ground without power following high winds on Friday night.
They are due to travel to Croydon on Wednesday night before hosting Molesey on Saturday and travelling to Frimley Green next Tuesday.
Whitchurch United's Wessex League Premier Division trip to Fawley was also called off. They are due to host Bemberton Heath Harlequins tomorrow night.
Fellow Hampshire Premier League outfit AFC Aldermaston saw their home game against Headley United wiped out.
They will be hoping that the pitch recovers in time for Winchester Castle to visit on Wednesday night, while they are due to travel to Hellenic League outfit Chalfont Wasps in the semi-finals of the Berks and Bucks Intermediate Cup on Saturday.
Basingstoke Town Ladies also managed to play at the weekend, losing 2-0 at table-topping Aldershot Town. However, their Hampshire Cup match against Portsmouth FC Ladies had to be postponed last Wednesday.
